Winter Came Early

I ran the Rocket City Marathon on Saturday. I promise there will be a full race report with pictures, but for now I'll just say that I ran my second fastest marathon ever in 4:19:08. I'll take that. I felt pretty good until the last few miles when my legs were quick to remind me I had just run a marathon (and a very hilly one at that!) just 3 weeks before. Nonetheless, I finished and am recovering well. Stay tuned for more.

In the meantime, allow me to share some photos. We got some snow in Nashville. It wasn't enough to play in or getting really excited about, but it was pretty and messed up the roads for the day.

Tucker likes watching the flakes come down.

This is out the window before it really started to accumulate.

My parents were out of town so I had their cat for the weekend. After a while, both cats grew tired of watching snowflakes. I found them curled up on the guest bed (and my clean laundry!) snug as bugs.

It's cold up in here. 18 and feels like 8! This is unseasonably cold (and snowy) for December in Nashville. On the bright side, it actually feels a bit more like Christmas now that we have winter weather.
